For Breast Augmentation, Sacramento Women Are Going Smaller

Share Article

A "fake" look is out and a natural look is in, as more women are choosing smaller breast implants for their Sacramento, CA breast augmentation procedures. The board-certified plastic surgeons at Kaufman and Clark Plastic Surgery share details on the most popular choices for natural-looking results.

A sophisticated, sexy look is the priority for women seeking out breast augmentation in Sacramento, CA. The board-certified plastic surgeons at Kaufman & Clark Plastic Surgery ( say new technologies and better pre-surgery planning are prompting many more women to opt for smaller-size breast implants.

"Our patients still want to achieve a larger breast size, and for some of them that still means higher-volume implants, but lately more women are deciding that a natural look is best accomplished with a smaller implant size," says Dr. David Kaufman. "The goal for most patients is to create a sexier look, but an increasing number of women are achieving that look from a smaller-scale enhancement."

Dr. Kaufman and Dr. Christa Clark say size is not the only factor in a result that looks very natural. To avoid the "worked-on" look, plastic surgeons can adjust a variety of factors such as the shape and position of the implants to allow patients a wider range of options. Depending on the patient's anatomy and skin quality, they may recommend certain sizes of breast implants in Sacramento, CA over others, but part of the choice always remains with the individual patient.

"We make implant recommendations based on a patient's anatomy and priorities, as well as considerations like whether they'll need a breast lift with their breast augmentation," explains Dr. Clark.

Computer systems that "preview" breast augmentation results may also play a role in the new emphasis on smaller implants. Increasingly, surgeons like Dr. Kaufman and Dr. Clark are helping patients plan their procedure through the use of computer imaging systems that can replicate potential results based on various implant sizes and positions as well as a patient's existing anatomy.

"Many women are going for smaller implants partly because this imaging system helps them see that they don't need large-volume implants to get a very full, rounded look," explains Dr. Kaufman. "Our system generates a three-dimensional image of the patient's own breasts to help personalize their choices."

Dr. Kaufman and Dr. Clark say that images generated from the 3D imaging system tend to come very close to the results that a qualified breast augmentation surgeon in Sacramento can achieve.

Dr. David Kaufman and Dr. Christa Clark ( are board-certified plastic surgeons focusing on breast augmentation in Sacramento, as well as postbariatric body contouring and other advanced plastic surgery procedures. Dr. Kaufman served as a US Navy SEAL before earning his medical doctorate from Harvard Medical School, while Dr. Christa Clark earned her medical doctorate from Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit. Both Dr. Kaufman and Dr. Clark trained extensively through general and plastic surgery residencies at Stanford University.
